Building off of last year’s most successful fall season in a decade, Global welcomes a fresh crop of laugh-out-loud comedies and emotionally-charged dramas delivering exceptional programming with established brands, powerful storytelling, and big stars.
Featuring Hollywood heavyweights including Jeremy Piven (Wisdom of the Crowd), Edie Falco (Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders), David Boreanaz (SEAL Team), Anne Heche (The Brave), Shemar Moore (S.W.A.T.), and the superstar cast of Will & Grace, this fall’s new series join last fall’s #1 new comedy Kevin Can Wait, #1 drama Bull (2+), and #1 reality series Survivor, making Global the must-see television network this fall.
Jumpstarting premiere week is the new pulse-charging heroic drama, The Brave, kicking off Global’s stellar primetime schedule on Monday, September 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Starring multi-talented Anne Heche (Men in Trees), and former Global star Mike Vogel (Under the Dome), the compelling series navigates the complex world of elite undercover operatives executing missions around the globe.
Joining Mondays the following week is Mark Feuerstein (Royal Pains) with a new comedy inspired by his real life in 9KJL premiering October 2 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT.
The week intensifies on Tuesday nights with Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders premiering Tuesday, September 26 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Starring Emmy and Golden Globe winner Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), this new true-crime installment of the Law & Order franchise delves into the notorious murder case. The eight-part limited series explores what drove two young brothers to kill their parents, examining their upbringing and issues that brought them to that horrible moment.
The new fall lineup continues on Wednesdays with David Boreanaz’s (Bones) return to Global as Jason Hayes in the heart-pounding emotional drama SEAL Team, beginning Wednesday, September 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Having to face high-risk missions against impossible odds, Hayes (Boreanaz) struggles between his personal and professional life as the commander of the most elite unit in the Navy.
Then, comedy prevails on Thursday nights as the fall’s most anticipated series returns to television. After 11 years the fab four – Will, Grace, Karen, and Jack – of Will & Grace come home to Global beginning Thursday, September 28 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
The comedy hour continues at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT with season two of workplace drama Great News, produced by former SNL star Tina Fey and starring Nicole Richie (Candidly Nicole) and Canadian superstar Andrea Martin (Working the Engels).
Later this fall, Thursday night’s 10 p.m. time-slot gets a dose of adrenaline with high octane drama series S.W.A.T., starring fan favourite Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds) on November 2.
The week caps off with new Sunday night drama Wisdom of the Crowd premiering October 1 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Starring Emmy and Golden Globe winner Jeremy Piven (Entourage), the inspiring and modern drama follows a father (Piven) who sets out to solve the heart-breaking murder of his daughter through a cutting-edge crowdsourcing app, and ends up revolutionizing crime solving in the process.
Along with the new series premiering this fall, Global maintains its momentum with some of Canada’s favourite series returning to the schedule, including last fall’s #1 new comedy Kevin Can Wait on Monday, September 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, followed by last fall’s #1 drama Bull (2+) on Tuesday, September 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, and the long-standing #1 reality series Survivor on Wednesday, September 27 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
